Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Can I use digital payments to pay for moving services?

Most local moving companies are likely to accept some form of digital payment. Particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic, more companies are likely to conduct transactions through platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and more. 

To ensure the mover accepts a platform you can use, you can peruse the mover’s online profile and see what is listed there. You can also ask the mover about payment policies during a consultation call.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you’re trying to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic, make sure to use digital tools to avoid exposure. When searching for movers online, ask if they’d be willing to do a video chat to assess the size of your move. This will be in place of the typical “walk-through” they perform, and they may be able to give you a price quote. You can also discuss safe strategies for completing the job during your call or video chat.

How can I find out if a mover is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Your local city or state’s government website is a great resource if you’re trying to figure out whether a mover is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For a source of national guidelines, visit the CISA website’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. On this page, you’ll find 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors. But note that some -- not all --  jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Do movers offer remote or virtual services?

Movers generally need to be present to do their job. But if you come across a mover’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, you can contact them to see what those services include. 

Does a mover need to enter my home?

A mover will likely need to enter your home -- unless you’ve placed all of your belongings outside beforehand. To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, you might to consider keeping all (or most) of the work outside and/or having at-risk individuals leave the house while the movers work. 

You can minimize exposure by doing a preliminary walk-through by video call instead of in person. Discuss your options with the top movers near you before hiring one.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a mover when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a mover, consider making adjustments to accommodate current guidelines. This may involve staying outside while the mover works inside your home or letting the mover handle only parts of the move.

It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines while performing any service work. For example, do not make physical contact with the movers, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

What is considered a local move vs. a long-distance move?

Local moves are among the most common moves. Unlike a long-distance move, a local move is typically less than 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Generally, a local move only takes one day, and movers tend to charge by the hour. 

The definition of a long-distance move may vary depending on the moving company. Generally, a long-distance considered to be any move of 400 miles or more. However, some say a long-distance move is over 50-100 miles. 

Local Move

A move under 50 miles

Long-Distance Move

A move over 50-100 miles or over 400 miles; may also be called an “interstate move” or “out-of-state move”

Out-of-State Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “interstate move” or “long-distance move”

Interstate Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “out-of-state move” or “long-distance move”

Intrastate Move

A move that begins and ends in the same state, typically beyond 50 miles

Interstate moves require additional legal preparation and will incur additional costs for distance, the amount and weight of your items, the preparation required and various other factors. Moving companies tend to do an initial weighing of the truck, which you should be present for.

A move that crosses state lines is considered an interstate move or an out-of-state move. Contrast this with an intrastate move, which begins and ends in the same state, but is typically above 50 miles. 

To determine whether your move is local or long-distance, contact the best movers in your area.

 

 

How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

Can you move furniture by yourself?

You might be able to move smaller items like nightstands, small desks, chairs and small tables by yourself. However, it’s best to get a professional mover near you to move larger items such as couches, dressers, armoires and televisions. 

If you do decide to move furniture by yourself, carefully lift and lower items and take your time.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

I recently used their services for a short move within the same city and it worked well. Based on the details I provided I was given an estimate of 3 hours which is also their minimum. On the say of moving the movers arrived on time and were cognizant of ensuring the move completes within 3 hours.

So glad I chose Octopus Moving for my cross-town move! Igor and his crew were professional, courteous, and especially accommodating. I hadn't emptied bureau drawers, and they still agreed to move them. I hadn't finished packing, and they offered to help wrap and pack. I had many one-off tables and plant stands that they loaded/unloaded. Included bed and kitchen table disassembly and reassembly. Their time and cost estimates were right on the mark. I hate moving. Octopus Moving made the event less stressful. I fervently hope never to have to move again. If I do, wouldn't hesitate to work with Octopus Movers again! Thank you!

I misplaced the paper with the names of the specific movers who helped out, but they showed up when expected and where very good about getting everything loaded up. I had planned on moving a bit more myself, but they packed my TV really well and were careful moving it, as well as a glass cabinet. My tip to anyone moving is to take several days more than you expect to need to make sure you are fully packed. By doing this, they were able to move me in less than the time estimated, saving me money. If you aren't someone who has moved several times, watch youtube videos from u-pack, uhaul, or other big moving companies for tips on the best way to pack different items.

Alex and Jacob came to my rescue when my movers backed out 5 days before I was planned to move from Boston to Corpus Christi. The level of service, attention to detail, and punctuality is unheard of in today's world. Luxe Moving, thank you for saving the day.

Eric and Christian were wonderful to work with. They were professional, punctual, but also fun to chat with while we were moving stuff out. They planned things out ahead of time and the move went very quickly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone moving out of an apartment.

We moved from New Hampshire to New Jersey and decided to use Born to Move after doing extensive research on interstate moving. I would highly recommend them to anyone! They gave us the best price and were professional and friendly. We are so thankful to the entire team in helping us get into our new home!

Hired these guys to do ~60 mile move from NH to MA. On time to begin the move and on-point with the move itself from loading to unloading. Both employees were super friendly while working and both introduced themselves before beginning the load, which I appreciated. The owner came to my new residence and shook my hand and introduced himself. It is very uncommon in this day and age to receive that type of customer service. I would 100% use them for my next move.

Amazing experience! The office staff was a pleasure to deal with and the quote we got was pretty much spot on. The movers, Jeff and Corey, were very friendly and professional. They moved all of our things with lightning speed and no complaints even though it was a difficult move. They treated our things with respect and kindness. We would happily use Real Deal again and will tell all our friends to do the same!

Terron was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, prompt, courteous, organized, and an extremely hard worker. My original move date was scheduled for Sunday 2/16 but because of the snow storm I asked if he could help move me a day earlier and he was able to accommodate my request with very little notice. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking to move his experience and attitude definitely shined.

I hired Hebert Movers to complete a simple move of a sofa and loveseat on my property--not even any need for a truck. Should have been a 15-minute job. We agreed on a date, time and price. They no-showed and then became unresponsive to e-mail.

The two movers who came worked hard and did great work. What broke down was an incredibly low estimate on the part of Payne, one of three movers didn’t show due to medical need, showed up 2 hours late, didn’t finish and had to come back next day - 2 hours late again, lost bolts to secure large wooden table, left blankets/hats. Cost doubled after conversation with owner. I wouldn’t secure them again until they came out to estimate move.

We had five movers (Leandro, Alfredo, Oscar, Jesus, Ran) and two 26 foot trucks to move a three level, 2 bedroom town house and a jam packed 10x30ft. storage unit. They were able to fit all of the contents unlike our previous move, where we ended up taking several car loads after the movers left because there was no more room on the truck. They arrived during the two hour window they specified. All of the movers worked very hard and efficiently even in 90 degree heat. They were sure to identify all previously damage on furniture and items so we were aware and knew it was preexisting. All of the workers were careful and professional. I believe our total cost came in just below or right about what we we're quoted. Their time estimation was right on! We were very pleased with the speed and overall quality of the move, I do not think anything was damaged. My only complaint is that a number of boxes did not end up in the right rooms even though most rooms and boxes were labeled. The furniture and some other larger items were not left in the right places. This was partially my inexperience in having a moving crew. I was out at the truck directing where to bring things. I needed someone inside to give specific instructions to the movers for furniture placement and where to create box piles. I did give specific instructions on a few items and it was lost in translation. (For example, I asked that the gas grill be left on the stones at the edge on the deck. Instead, they put it on the deck.) This was not a huge problem as we can move things around but it would have been nice to not have to do a whole lot of rearranging. I would hire them again but would know more how to direct them to get even better end results.

I got in touch with Frank via Thumbtack in mid July. We had some issues with our final closing date changing between 2 weeks and they were willing to store our stuff overnight. We ended up closing on August 5th and Frank was very accommodating to our schedule. Our team arrived on time at 2pm. We had Team JBJ - Joshua, Bryant and Josh. They were simply amazing from the moment they walked into our 3rd floor apartment to attempting to help us wall mount our tv (although we were missing screws) at our new home. JBJ moved us out of our 3rd floor apartment within 2 hours, drove to our new home within half and had already started unpacking the truck while we were running an errand. By the time we arrived at our home, half of the truck was already unpacked in our porch ready to be moved in. Team JBJ disassembled and reassembled our bed frame, dresser/mirror, and dining room table with care. We were skeptical about using movers for our short move but are so glad that we went with Hebert movers. I would highly recommend them as they are on time, quote the correct amount of hours, don't waste time during the move and are a fun bunch to work with while remaining professional. Thanks guys! Get ready to move some of our friends in the near future in the Nashua/Dracut area. 😊
